Dwarf Korean Lilac is a dapper little lollipop-shaped tree for your entryway garden, patio area, courtyard, or any of the more formal planting beds around your home. A matching pair will elegantly frame a garden gate, a pathway, or your front door. This popular ornamental tree has sweetly fragrant purple flowers that will remind you of Grandma's house, but this isn't your grandmother's Lilac! Dwarf Korean Lilac blooms a bit later than Common Lilacs and has wavy, nickel-sized leaves that never get mildew like Common Lilacs do. Whether in or out of bloom, this tree has a neat outline and a clean, polished look that complements many garden styles, both modern and traditional.

The Story

Plant explorer Frank Meyer, working for the USDA in the early 1900s, spent years combing the Chinese countryside and cities for plants that could be useful to the West. His haul?  An amazing 2,500 new species and varieties.  He brought us Ginkgos, Persimmons, Junipers, Bamboos, Soybeans, and the Meyer Lemon that bears his name.  He even sent back tins of “bean cheese”—Westerners first taste of tofu?  And this Lilac.  Strangely, we don’t know where he got the Meyer Lilac, because it has never been found in the wild since.

The Details

A fragrant Lilac on a stick - that's pretty much what this is... This uncommon tree form Lilac produces panicles of fragrant purple flowers in spring amidst bright green foliage. A perfect small tree to plant near your patio or window or door (to enjoy the wonderful fragrance!).

How to Grow

This Dwarf Korean Lilac is literally a shrub on a stick. Take the typical lilac shrub and graft, or join, it with the trunk of another plant and we have a unique tree-like form of the Dwarf Korean Lilac. They do best in full sun and can handle light shade but they won’t flower as well. Dwarf Koreans will grow well in almost all soil conditions as long as it is well-drained. They are generally free of any major pest problems and they don’t have the usual mildew problems as some Lilacs tend to develop later in the summer. A medium rate fertilizer applied once a year for the first few years is beneficial. This dose should be applied during the fall to promote healthy growth and flowers for next spring. To keep the desired tree shape give your tree an annual shearing after it is done flowering and be sure to cut off any suckers that happen to sprout off of the trunk. When it is mentioned that you should prune “after flowering” keep in mind that you have a 4-6 week long window to prune.
